    I have an HP laptop and the battery is shot (100% charged but only 45 minutes!). I tried to order a new one from HP but their website says it's no longer available. I found so many on the web but I'm a bit scared to drop $150 on something useless.

    Does anyone have a good, reliable battery vendor?

    Thanks.

    Try batteries plus, they can get you just about anything at a good price

    Moi, about the two best bets you have are pricewatch.com or find a used/discount computer store in the area. older laptop parts are definitely the hardest to get.

    Very odd. You would think living in the same house, coupled with the fact that I work on computers for a living, that I might have been aware of this. :)

    I know of quite a few good places, and now I'll keep them to myself. :cof:

    Always check eBay first and other resellers and distributors (newegg).
